Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission Ruling Reviewed by Court


Help at Home v. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, No. 4-09-0977 WC, is a case in which the appellant challenged the Circuit Court of Morgan County’s decision in regard to the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission’s (the Commission) determination in this case.

The workers’ compensation claimant alleged that she was injured while employed by Help at Home, sustaining injuries to her lower back and right shoulder. At issue on appeal was whether the original arbitrator, who concluded that the claimant’s injuries were caused by work-related activities, could re-consider additional evidence in that regard.
